Better message notification for Pidgin (KDE 4 / Kubuntu 9)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2009
I need some sort of better message notification than I'm currently seeing with Pidgin. Currently If I have a new message, an icon appears in my system tray.
The notification cant be sound based (I'm in an office; sometimes I have my headphones plugged in, sometimes I just have the system muted). I would really like something like Adium's growl announcements where a little message appears in the top right corner for a few seconds, but pretty much anything would be an improvement at this point. Does any one have any suggestions what I can do? A plug-in for pidgin? Some hook into KDE? I need something.
Unable to open Yahoo! chatrooms in Pidgin, Gyachi, KDE chat client ....
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2013
Until recently I used to be able to connect to Yahoo chat rooms in pidgin without any problems. But now I am unable to do so, and not just in pidgin. I have tried almost every client out there, and everything else works except the chatroom thing.
In pidgin for example, when I press Ctrl+C a pop up opens asking for the name of the chat room. I enter the name and press join, the popup closes and nothing happens. Same for when I click join in the room list window.
Does this happen to anybody else? Any suggestions are welcome.
pidgin large icon in kde system tray
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 24, 2009
In kde system tray the icon for pidgin is very large.
This can be fixed if I take preferences and disable icon and then re-enable. After that icon will appear normally.
Is there anyway to fix this in the first place.
Pidgin Security Update Killed KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2009
Hi. I'm running Slack 12.2, with the last KDE 4.2 packages that Pat made available, that were built to run on 12.2. Until today, everything was running fine. I have a local KDE session running, and I use either TightVNC or, very rarely, the NoMachine NX client to connect remotely, to a second session.
This morning, I connected, via TightVNC, and applied the security upgrade to pidgin, that was just released. During this upgrade, the background go my KDE session suddenly turned white, and I also lost the toolbar.
As I was unable to do anything with the session, at that point, I killed the TightVNV session, and restarted it. When I logged back in, all I get is a black screen. Nothing else.
I then removed the pidgin package, and tried again. Same result. I also tried to connect using NX. I saw the initialising dialog, and got the 1st 4 icons. Following that, if I clicked anywhere on the screen, it just went black. Again, no background, and no toolbar.

Linux Mint 13 KDE vs Kubuntu 12.04: Is Mint KDE really better?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2012
I'm trying to convert someone to a *buntu and I think KDE would be really perfect for him. However when I tried Kubuntu myself it ran decently, but I got a lot of crash reports etc. Also I read a few Kubuntu 12.04 reviews and they didn't seem to be really good either... Also a lot of people say Kubuntu is a bad KDE distro and much worse than the other *buntus. However most people seem to be really excited about Linux Mint KDE edition (which is based on Ubuntu, not Kubuntu).
So my question is: "Is Linux Mint KDE (as of version 13) really better than Kubuntu 12.04?"
I'm also looking at Cinnamon (which I'm probably going to "use" instead of KDE, if Linux Mint KDE is just as worse as Kubuntu). I myself am happily using Unity (it fits me just right), but I think maybe Unity is a bit to confusing (global menu bar, to distinguish running programs and closed programs in the dock etc.). However I myself am really fond of the search functionality and I woul
Ubuntu + KDE vs Kubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
Hi to all,
I don't know if this is the right section to post this question, but it's interesting for me to know if it's the same thing installing KDE on ubuntu or install Kubuntu directly. ( suppose you have the same base, eg. 10.04 )
Some people in forum says that it's not exactly the same thing. So, what are the differences?
Thank you very much!
KDE vs Android and iOS

KDE takes on Android, Apple's iOS on smartphones and tablets
By Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols | October 9, 2011, 11:47am PDT
Summary: KDE, one of the leading Linux desktops, is taking dead aim at Android and Apple’s iOS on smartphones and tablets.
If another group was trying to take on Android and Apple’s iOS on smartphones and tablets, I’d dismiss them. RIM, BlackBerry’s parent company, is having a heck of a time getting anyone to buy into PlayBook and while HP TouchPad users loved it,HP killed the TouchPad after only a few weeks. So, why should anyone think that KDE, makers of one of the two most popular Linux desktops, should stand a chance with Plasma Active? Well, because KDE has a long history of delivering the goods with minimal resources....
Can KDE take on both Android and iOS and be a serious contender?...if yes or no what is your intellectual reasoning?
KDE on Ubuntu vs. Kubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2005
I'd be interested to hear why people prefer Kubuntu over simply loading Ubuntu and then adding KDE via: sudo apt-get install kde
I had tried Kubuntu before and liked it but didn't like that it didn't have the ubuntu update-notifier and ubuntu update-manager.
I just loaded KDE in Ubuntu and noticed that when in KDE, I can still use both update-notifier and update-manager.
update-notifier will even reside in the kde panel. I see these two packages and a solid advantage over kubuntu.
What do othe people think? What advantages might kubuntu might have?
Kubuntu vs. Ubuntu: KDE the only difference?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2009
I recently made an Ubuntu liveCD for a family member, and tested it myself first. It impressed me, so I might possibly be interested in switching distros; but I'm not very familiar with Gnome(GNOME?), so I might try Kubuntu instead. Am I correct in understanding that the only difference is Kubuntu uses KDE (hence the K)? If there are other differences, does Kubuntu share the limited user control that I've heard Ubuntu has, such as locking the root account by default? (It was three years ago that I heard that. For all I know, it's no longer a problem.)
